A330 On NWA From Gatwick?

Tue Mar 15, 2005 7:51 am

I am flying to Minneapolis on NW43 in mid-June. How can I check and see if I am getting the A330 or the DC-10s?

Northwest Airlines NW43/44 is with a Boeing (Douglas) DC10 in June

According to some of the bloggers on here, it supposed to be a DC10 from both DTW and MSP.

Iv heard otherwise.... I think MSP crews are to start training on the A330 this spring, when the next one is delivered, so one flight from MSP will probably get an A330... most likely LGW unless MSP-CDG comes online.

The personal VOD on NW's A333 is nice, but I prefer the old DC-10 for nostalgia. Flew both on my DFW-MEM-AMS-FRA, FRA-DTW-DFW round trip last September.
Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.

The first A330 service from MSP will be the MSP-AMS. They've already been doing A330 training.
